Dundee Ceramics Workshop was established in 2016 by members of Tin Roof Arts Collective. Founded in 2010 by graduates of DJCAD, the collective’s intent was to provide a space for artists and the wider creative community to work and collaborate. Between 2010 and 2016 Tin Roof were based on Ure Street in a large industrial warehouse where they provided studio space for nearly 100 artists, a wood workshop and two exhibition spaces.
In 2016 Tin Roof relocated to Milne’s East Wynd and launched Dundee Ceramics Workshop, providing facilities, classes, kiln hire, and 1-1 tuition for ceramic artists and enthusiasts. In 2019 the workshop doubled in size when it moved to Wasps Meadow Mill, enabling the collective to offer studio space for rent again in the form of four small units for ceramic artists.
The workshop is run by a volunteer committee who meet weekly in the studio.
Our committee members are:
Jen Collins [admin]
Joanna Helfer [board]
Lola Knibb [graduate intern]
Tanith Marron [board]
Our workshop technicians are Sarah Rychtarova and Jill Skulina. We’re grateful to Ella, Jenny, Joely and Molly who volunteer to open the workshop.
